This article will teach you how to reset the Samsung fridge water filter light and explains the procedure to follow when it won’t go off even after you’re done with the Samsung fridge water filter replacement process.
Remember that the filter reset light only turns red when the filter is due for change (otherwise, it will not be illuminated).
Let’s get started:
How to reset the filter light on a Samsung refrigerator (steps to follow on different models)
With most Samsung refrigerators, you need to hold down the FILTER RESET button for about seconds to get the red filter icon to turn off.
Be sure to consult your owners’ manual if you can’t trace the FILTER RESET button on your refrigerator – it is traditionally on the dispenser controls (on the front of your refrigerator).
However, on other models, you must press and hold down either the “WATER FILTER” button or “ICE/WATER” button -for 3 seconds.
Now, since the Samsung fridge water filter reset procedure is not the same for every model, below we highlight the correct Samsung refrigerator reset filter light steps for different models (typical steps).

Other steps worth trying if reset light indicator won’t go out
In a nutshell, you can as well try the following if installing a new filter did not make the red light turn off:
· Check if the buttons are locked
Be sure the buttons are actually “unlocked” or the listed Samsung refrigerator filter reset procedure will not work.
You can again consult your manual book for the steps on how to unlock the controls, if needed.
· Check the filter seating
The filter alarm light may still be blinking because the newly installed filter is seated improperly. Open the door, inspect the fitting, and fit it perfectly.
· Check if the correct filter was installed
The light notification may not also clear if you did not install a genuine product so you may want to swap the replacement filter (as a last resort).
How to reset the filter light on a Samsung refrigerator – Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
How do i turn off the filter light on my Samsung refrigerator?
For the most part, the procedure to perform Samsung refrigerator water filter reset is pressing and holding down any of these buttons for 3 seconds.
- The FILTER RESET button.
- The “WATER FILTER” button or “ICE/WATER” button
But if your Samsung refrigerator filter light won’t reset, check if the buttons might be locked and unlock them before re-trying.
We hope that you now understand how to reset the filter light on a Samsung refrigerator (and probably you have already gotten rid of the warning).
One final thing: Most Samsung refrigerator models come with a “LOCK” button that is used to lock the controls and this is often to blame if Samsung fridge water filter light won’t turn off once you try.
It will, therefore, be important for you to unlock the controls for the water filter light to be reset successfully so try to hold down the flashing LOCK button for 3 seconds then retry.
Needless to say, the unlock procedure is different in various models so check your manual for proper instructions if the above doesn’t work.
